Yes! I write my own stories and fantasies with characters of my own creation, and often insert myself into these stories as a character who is like me but has some differences. The real world never quite matches up.

Isn't this more about being disappointed in reality than being uncomfortable about it?

Reality is profoundly disturbing to me.

Yeah, I probably misunderstood "disturbed". What disturbs you about reality?

Reality sucks. It's easy to see why people get religious or become conservatives.

... Hold on, let me check my calendar. Nope, nothing planned for the rest of the year.

A lot of things, mostly what affects me in the most direct way: how humans behave and think

Maybe more lonely than uncomfortable but there is a lot of overlap. Everyone is on a different wavelength than me and it's like there all phantoms to me and I'm a phantom to them. I can see them but it's mostly irrelevant. The truth is I'm alone.

My Mood: Happy
I wouldn't say it makes me feel uncomfortable, I just feel sort of like an outsider because I have a hard time trying to relate with others. Since I'm so quiet, I have a hard time speaking to people or making any friends. I enjoy meeting people, but a lot of people find me weird. I don't even think I'm weird, so maybe I could be over thinking it a little bit. It's just hard walking around sometimes and seeing others with people, while I'm walking alone. It makes me feel lonely sometimes.

I don't need a lot of friends to feel happy, but I wish I could meet someone in my hometown who I could at least hang out with on a regular basis.

Well if I think back to how much of my life I was medicated for I think we could safely say it makes me uncomfortable yes.

Some of the best years of my life were those when I was heavily medicated (albeit, with illegal drugs).

It's nice to just not care about anything except getting high. It's a very simple existence. But eventually, the drugs don't make you feel good anymore and you have to face reality. That's when things get rough.

but there are an incredible amount of different substances available. you could focus on one or 2 drugs at a time, and start using a new one whenever the tolerance is completely built up. you'll have stuff to do your entire life lol.

It's not really a matter of building up a tolerance. If you do enough drugs, it destroys your liver and nothing makes you feel good. Thankfully, the liver is the one organ in the body that can repair itself.

Everything goes thru liver? Even injected and smoked drugs?

Reality can be scary at times . For instance the fear of being all alone and having to start over . Being dropped off at a homeless shelter that's real scary reality.
